I have a real problem with my M35 engine at the moment.
I want to start the motor as usual, with the gears in neutral and the revs at idle.
I turned the key to heat the glow plugs, waited and then started the engine.
As soon as it fired the revs increased like crazy, although the throttle was still at idle (and proved to be the case after the incident).
I was stunned for a split second and grabbed for the fuel shut off handle and pulled. At first it seemed innefective until I really pulled it hard.
The engine shut down and I stopped panicking.
After a good while and a steadying drink I decided to try again. With some trepidation I went through the start procedure, but no joy, the engine turned over but would not start. I found no fuel was getting through to the injectors.
I went through the entire fuel system and found no fault. The fuel was being pumped to the fuel pump and flowing through the fuel return system, but nothing flowing through the injector pump itself.
Before I tackle the problem I wondered if anyone else had this occur and if so what was the result?
Look forward to hearing
